This Thanksgiving I am especially thankful to Susan Burdo, the girl who took a big risk and shared with me the fact that Jesus died for my sins on the cross and that I did not have to go to hell for my many offenses and sins against God. When I understood that Jesus took my sin on Himself, that God loved me this much, I was all in. Everything changed for me that day (May 2, 1974). Ever since, I have lived thankful to God for sending his Son. I have thoroughly enjoyed discovering and learning how to walk as a child of God in this life and anticipate an unhindered life with him for all eternity when this life comes to an end. If you do not know Jesus. If you have not placed your faith in Jesus' death and resurrection, take the time this holiday season to look into it. Read one of the Gospels in the Bible (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). Ask a Christian you know about their faith. God wants to save everyone, but he will not override your will. He will accept you if you choose Him.
I'm reading the book, Hell on Trial, by Robert Peterson. It is literally scaring the hell out of me. The author demonstrates carefully, with Scriptural support, that hell will mean separation from God and punishment for sin (pain) for all eternity. Forever. We are all going to die. We will all be somewhere. My hope is that we all take Jesus seriously and throw ourselves wholeheartedly on His death and resurrection, our only means of escaping the wrath of God against our rebellion against Him.The amazing thing is that those in Christ get to go to heaven, a place where we will experience a deep loving relationship with God and all the happiness we were designed for. We choose every day where we will spend eternity. I pray we all choose wisely.
I set up the Amazon account for Godsend so that when you order the paperback books, you can also download the books on Kindle for free. Kindle allows authors to charge whatever they want. I didn't think it was right for anyone to have to pay for the book twice.
Book Signing: Jeremy and I will be at Barnes and Noble in Victorville Mall on Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 signing copies of Godsend. Please stop by and say, hi.
